This wiki is used in both America and The Commonwealth
. This would be titled "American and British English spelling differences

On TV Tropes, here's the guidelines:
- Use whichever one you're comfortable with.
- First come, first served. Don't change the spelling in someone else's writing; this will just lead to edit warring.
- If there's strong national ties to the page in question, it's okay to standardi(s/z)e to one spelling. For instance, it's okay to change "colour" to "color" on Eagleland, and it's okay to change "program" to "programme" on British Brevity. The same goes for work pages.
- Create redirects for titles with multiple accepted spellings. This makes the page searchable for both styles. Mixing styles in a title doesn't usually make much sense, though.
